But this is 2014, where Leprechauns need traps, Easter involves presents and Santa needs the help of a misogynistic elf. ¬† Pinterest exists to promote the idea that every holiday can be a beautiful, color coordinated spectacle, if only you take the time to warm up your glue gun.¬† I am not going to lie; there are days I want that for myself and my kids. I want to wake up in a world where I have the time to decorate my house inside and out in delightfully chic hearts and that manage to be both tacky and beautiful. However, that is not the world in which I live. My world mainly consists of waiting for cards to go on deep discount at Rite Aid before we go and buy a few boxes to split in a mad grab between my kids. Chances are I am not going all out for V-Day 2014. I can, however, step it up to ‚Äúmoderate effort level ‚ÄĚ and you can too. ¬† Join me for ‚ÄúAt Least I Tried- Valentine‚Äôs Day 2014.‚ÄĚ More
Fifteen years and three kids later, my wish list is a bit simpler. Would I like to re-create the sort of blissful romance I had in years past? Of course. But, my priorities have definitely changed with the two new little loves of my life. Nowadays, I consider it to be a true gift if I am able to use the bathroom without a kid trying to jump on my head at the same time. So, for this year, I present this fantasy list of six things I want for Valentine‚Äôs Day that don‚Äôt cost a thing. More
t’s almost Valentine’s Day, and if you are like me you get your kids a card and maybe some candy or another small little thing. The issue I have with Valentine’s Day is that I can never find the perfect card to get for my teenager, either they are too sappy or don’t fit his personality or just don’t seem right. I’m sure some of you with teen daughters feel the same way.
Because I’m a totally helpful person, I have created a lovely collection of Valentine’s Day cards for your teenagers that probably work a lot better than what you see on the racks in stores. More
Were some people offended by this? Probably someone, somewhere, was. I’m sure many readers will be scandalized. But, for me, the important thing for ourselves and our children is that we show gratitude. I’m not convinced that always sending a thank you note is the only way to do it, and I especially think the obsessive score keeping is much ruder and much more hateful. More
Oh, man, if you can somehow find a way to plan your life perfectly, don’t be pregnant on a holiday. Especially not my all-time favorite holiday that only comes but once a year: New Year’s Eve. More
I think we can all agree that Christmas haul photos are tacky. So why do they still exist? More
So much for the scaling back idea; I’ve realized it’s impossible to have a child who’s not showered with gifts when you are surrounded by relatives.
Happy holidays from¬†STFU, Parents! The jingle bells are ringing, the snow is falling (depending on where you live), and the fire is raging (unless, like me, you just¬†watch this). As of last week, we have officially entered The Winter Season. Let us all rejoice before sliding down a¬†flight of stairs. To help kick off the season, and to celebrate the Christmas holiday, let’s take a look at some mommyjacking examples that pertain specifically to winter weather and snowy activities. More

My family is not a Christmas or holiday card type family. I believe that we’ve only done one official photo card and I’ve sent out standard cards¬†maybe three or four times. Ever. With all the rest of the hustle and … More
I thought about a list of things I’d be able to brag about in my own holiday video. There is no way I could sum up a whole year – I can’t even remember what I did last week. Instead, I decided to make a list of things that would be in my holiday video, if my holiday video celebrated all of the things I accomplished yesterday. I think it’s pretty impressive. More
As my kids shouted for breakfast I went into the garage. I began to think, ‚ÄúWhat would MacGyver do if he had a Pinterest account?‚ÄĚ With 17 kids to consider, I knew it would have to be easy and quick but at the same time, make me look like an incredible mother. More
Christmas is great and all but parents are excellent at celebrating almost anything. More
My father passed away before I had my children. You could describe our relationship as “tumultuous” at best – downright aggressive and angry at worst. I’m sure I’m not the only person who would tell you that death allows you to see a person with new eyes. I want my children to have stories about their grandfather – I want them to “know” him as best they can. How do I incorporate a father I didn’t get along with when he was living into our family rituals now? It’s something I’ve been struggling with this year. More
